Team Manager (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – 28 September 2016
Good company overall. You need to be in charge of you. Set boundaries that accommodate your work-life balance, but still allow you to put in some extra work when it's needed. Negotiate your salary before accepting a position. As the reward structure is not super flexible to bend for special cases. There can be a lot of opportunities if you are motivated for additional challenges. Those opportunities don't come with reward - the reward comes later.
Alternate work arrangements, great people, interesting work
Work load can become overwhelming if you don't advocate for yourself

The benefits of working for a global organization are only as endless as your vision for your future. I have had many great opportunities and see myself being able to travel and really experience this global organization at its best.
Very productive, layed back, easy going sometimes high pressure

Application Data Processer & CSR Hybrid (Current Employee) – Tempe, AZ – 12 November 2017
Although they have a positive working environment it is difficult to obtain "Permanent" status. Many people work for 5+ Years without losing their "Temporary" status. That being said, their One Exchange (Medicare) branch is more focused on the well being of their participants/customers than any other for profit company I have come into contact with, or heard of.
Commercial Producer, P&C (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – 24 October 2017
The merger with Towers Watson caused numerous deficits to the company and its culture. We lost 30+ people in two years, mostly because management asks for feedback but then there is no follow through and no support for those who ask.
Currently undergoing changes in stream lining service and brokering. This has been rather chaotic in the Tampa Service Center because of the constant changes, high workload coupled with service and placement requirements are not supported with proper systems and procedural training.
Overall culture is excellent and compensation is better than most like-kind companies
Process Associate (Current Employee) – Mumbai, Maharashtra – 22 October 2017
The job culture and Willis Towers Watson is fantastic. The most plus factor of working at Willis Towers Watson is that, employees don't have a formal compulsion dress code here. People are allowed to wear casuals during all time of working hours.
Another best part of working here at Willis Towers Watson is that no employee working here has any private cabins for themselves. All the employees including CEO's, MD's, and HOD's have and comman desk platform which is shared by everyone in general.
The most enjoyable part at my workplace is sense of openness and creativity you can put into those boring excel sheets. We have entire freedom of using our best of innovative ideas into to collated report that we produce and deliver to the client. Trust me, that often comes back as an appreciation.
Employees are free to use their own innovative ideas at workplace and enhance the productivity. The work-flow that we handle is quite vast. It cannot be streamlined into one form. Every client has different set of requirements and different previous years losses track record. In spite of this we make sure we deliver the best possible outcome.
Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Southfield, MI – 19 October 2017
They only care about high level associates that make the company millions of dollars. Merged 3x the 9+ years I was employed. No room for advancement. Find loop holes to not pay you advancements and yearly raise. Management is untrained and unprofessional. All about who you know, hire a lot of high executive family members and referrals. Discrimination against people of color and women. OPEN Environment.
Free lunch often, Flexible schedules
Healthcare drops yearly, no room for advancement, treats low level employees with less respect
